Competition proves zoo still a picture perfect attraction
Belfast Zoo has just announced the prize-winners in this year's annual picture competition – the 30th in its history.
More than 400 entries were received this year, which is a testament to the enduring attractions of Belfast Zoo, and also to the popularity of photography in an age where modern cameras packed with the latest technology can help talented amateurs achieve impressive results.
Of course the real stars are always the animals, including the big cats, the gorillas and a host of others who all have their own enthusiastic supporters.
With such an array of talent on both sides of the enclosures, it is no wonder that Belfast Zoo remains firmly in the picture as one of our top attractions.
